Everything You Know About Sex Is Wrong

Everything You Know About Sex Is Wrong March 27, 2018

 

 

Dr. Abby Hafer knows sex. She is the author of  The Not-So-Intelligent Designer: Why Evolution Explains the Human Body and Intelligent Design Does Not.  She was also a guest on the Naked Diner podcast. You may not be surprised that we talked a lot about sex.

Dr. Hafer stopped by MIT and gave a talk about, well, sex. Here is the video Everything You Know About Sex is Wrong — Abby Hafer (SSOMIT Darwin Day 2018). 

Enjoy!


Here’s a taste of her book:

UnIntelligent Design: Why Evolution Explains the Human Body and ‘Intelligent Design’ Does Not

Why do men’s testicles hang outside the body? Why does our appendix sometimes explode and kill us? And who does God like better, anyway–us, or squid? These and other questions are addressed in UnIntelligent Design—Why Evolution Explains the Human Body and Intelligent Design Does Not.

Dr. Hafer argues that the human body, though no less beautiful or marvelous for being flawed, has many faulty design features that would never have been the choice of an intelligent creator. In addition to pointing out problematic aspects of human anatomy, Dr. Hafer also gives examples of solutions to these problems that are found in other members of the animal kingdom. She then asks why other animals got better body parts than humans did, and wonders if this means that the designer prefers other animals to human beings. She also deals quickly and comprehensively with the idea of irreducible complexity.
